So Easy Crockpot Chicken

This is one of those recipes that  is going to have you shaking your head in disbelief. 
"It can't be that easy", is what you will be saying. 
It really, really is.
I got this recipe from our neighbor, Chris, who brought it to a potluck. It has a definite Asian flare that makes it extra addicting. You can cook it in the oven, if you prefer, but the slow cooker works like a hot darn. 
2 seconds of prep and *boom* done. 
Delicious dinner without any effort at all. 
Those are my favorite kind.

So Easy Crockpot Chicken
(Recipe from our neighbor, Chris)

1/2 cup BBQ sauce
1/2 cup soy sauce
2 lbs chicken drumettes (or wings)
1 bunch green onions, diced (divided)
1 Tbsp sesame seeds (optional)

Turn crockpot to high and lightly spray with cooking spray.
Stir together BBQ sauce and soy sauce and stir in the chicken drumettes to coat. Place in slow cooker and sprinkle with 3/4 of the green onions.

Cover and cook on high for approx 3 hours (until chicken is cooked through) - stirring at the halfway mark. 
To serve - place chicken on serving platter and sprinkle with remaining green onions and (if desired) some sesame seeds.

That's it. 
FYI - The sauce from the chicken is fantastic on rice or noodles. 

I made some plain Jasmine rice and some of our Double Happiness Chow Mein (click HERE for link) for a complete dinner with very little fuss. 
P.S. - It can easily be doubled or tripled for a crowd too. Perfect for potlucks!
If you want to cook this in the oven instead - Preheat oven to 450. Place chicken and sauce in a 9 X 13 pan and bake at 450 for 40 minutes. Turn down heat to 375 and bake another 20 minutes or so.

  1. Can you taste the soy sauce? My hubby hates the taste of soy sauce. If you can taste it what would be a good substitute?

    1. does taste a little bit like soy sauce. I'm not sure what you could substitute as the soy sauce is half the recipe.... Sorry we can't be of more help!
